Southern Iceland is the most visited part of this wild and woolly country. Of course, the presence of the capital and gateway Reykjavik has something to do with this, but so does the fact that this is a region with a lot to offer, from glaciers and geysers to volcanoes and waterfalls. The dramatic landscape of Southern Iceland features all those iconic Icelandic staples including glaciers and geysers galore, but also vast rumbling volcanoes. The most famous of all being the ‘celebrity’ volcano, Eyjafjallajökull, whose eruption caused all kinds of air travel chaos back in 2010, pausing Southern Iceland
holidays (and all other travel for that matter) for a week. Now the volcano has calmed down, the visitor centre is well worth a visit, chronicling how farmers survived the incredible ordeal. Away from the centre, the residual ash is evidence of the sheer scale of the eruption. Holidays to southern Iceland are great for seeing the black sands of Vik beach, the glacial lagoon of Jokularlon near Black Diamond beach (where many Hollywood blockbusters have been filmed) or spotting humpback and killer whales on whale watching boat trips. Tailor-made holidays in Southern Iceland are truly wild, while still being close enough to the country’s capital for all the creature comforts.
